Hi I'm Kelsie

I live in Arizona and am studying to become a nurse. I love music, learning, and playing sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently going to school to be a nurse, which recently changed. Even when you think you have your life figured out, the Lord sometimes says He has a different plan for you. I was going to be a physical therapist, but the Lord let me know that He wants me to be a nurse instead. Along with going to school, I love spending my free time hiking, geocaching, reading, and playing the piano. Being outdoors among God's creations with friends and family is one of my favorite ways to spend my time.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born into a home that already were members, it has still been a decision that I would make whether I would be a member or not. As I have gone through difficult times though, like family illness or life taking an unexpected turn, it has been through turning to the help of the Lord that has helped me be able to deal with things like grief, and that is what the church provides: a way to draw closer to Christ. It has a fullness and spirit that I have not found anywhere else. I love being able to go to church and the temple and feel God's love for me. The church truly helps you understand how God and Jesus Christ love each one of us individually and is very much a part of our daily lives.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I direct the choir, which I absolutely love doing! It is so much fun to be able to teach them different songs, and watch them grow and they learn new music. And I love being able to see them perform on Sunday during sacrament meeting and hear them do well. I also love being able to go visit the temple as often as I can. I love being able to feel the Lord's love with me always, so I do my best to read my scriptures and pray every day. If I do those, I know that the Lord will always be with me to help, strengthen, and guide me.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Having the gift of the Holy Ghost helps in so many ways. He can provide comfort and guidance during times that are difficult. He can be your constant companion and guide. It is a way to know that God loves you and cares for you, and is interested in every aspect of your life and wants to always be there to help you. Show more Show less
